Zazen (Zen meditation) experience in Daitsuji Temple
There are more than 30 Buddism temples in Yakage.
You can try Zazen at Daitsuji Temple.
It is located just 2 km northwest of Yakage central area. This temple was built in 743.
It’s famous for its beautiful Japanese garden. The garden is composed of special rocks and several trees.
The scenery is wonderful, so you can enjoy it every season.
Zazen is a form of meditation in Zen Buddism.
You sit up straight quietly with your legs crossed and eyes closed.
When we have the correct posture and breathing, then we correct our mind.
All you can hear is the sound of birds or wind.
After Zazen, you can enjoy talking with the priest over a cup of green tea.
